My brief story is I met a girl the other evening. Ended up hanging out all evening, and we both had a great time. Found myself thinking about her, so I asked her out on a lunch date. Her response: I don't date younger men. So I "challenged" her on that right away (I said something like: You're acting like you're old, you're not that much older than me). So now we're going for a lunch ----. I'm 20, I believe shes 24. At first I thought she was just blowing me off, and ending up still getting lunch was her being "consoling" towards me. My impression was that me not being 21 (/cough "no" /cough alcohol) wasn't the main issue. But I'm also wondering if it isn't a cultural thing? She's from an asian culture but has been in the US for a few years. Being from the US, I've felt that it's more correct for the guy to be older, but not that big of a deal. Is there that much of a difference over-seas in such things? So my questions: Girls, does that age difference turn you away? And anyone with non-Western cultural experience, is it more of an issue for them? Any other advice?
